Check out my recap of the Love and Hip Hop launch party for season 3.
Last week I attended the African American Women In Cinema Festival which was held at the Antigua & Barbuda Progressive Society. My documentary, From Prison to NYU, was screened along with serveral other films. It was great meeting other filmmakers and hearing the audiences’ positive feedback to my film. My two favorite films were Hill & Gully and Calypso Rose – I would definitely recommend seeing them both.
